During their second participation at a federal election, and less than five years after its creation, the MORENA (National Regeneration Movement) political party will govern over 56 million Mexicans, which represents a 47% of the country’s population, according to the National Population Council (CONAPO), and the Inter-censal Population Survey of 2015.

MORENA began as a civil organization in 2011, but it wasn’t until 2014 that it obtained its registry as a political party under Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s command. In 2015, the political party participated at a federal election for the first time, when it received over 3,300,000 votes and gained the victory of 35 federal deputies.
 

This year, MORENA has won the governorship of five entities: Veracruz, Chiapas, Morelos, Tabasco, and Mexico City, along with its 26,895,587 inhabitants. It also won 252 municipalities across the country, according to yesterday’s PREP vote count, which mounts up to 29,741,142 citizens. This makes a total of 56,636,729 people.

In addition to that, MORENA won the governorship of several state capitals such as: La Paz, Morelia, Othón P. Blanco, Hermosillo, Culiacán, Toluca, Oaxaca, Puebla, and Zacatecas.

According to the Preliminary Elections Results Program (PREP), several villages and populations chose MORENA’s cherry color for the next administration.
